Event description

Description

Our introductory talk will be looking at Peruvian textiles and their influence in the 20th century, beginning with the use of the collection at the American Museum of Natural History, moving on to key students of Peruvian textiles, including Ruth Reeves, Anni Albers, Ethel Mairet and Marianne Straub in England. You will then have the opportunity to see some original samples, gathered from Herr Fritz Ikle, the noted Peruvian scholar, finishing with a short talk by published archaeologist, Charlotte Harding, will discuss the reality, difficulties and joys of discovering textiles within archaeological digs.

Light refreshment break included.
